10/29/10 Dr. Bruce McCamm 1 Source Transformations 1 Source Transformations In this lecture, you will: Learn to transform voltage sources and series resistors into current sources with parallel resistors and vice versa Learn to apply this technique as another tool in solving circuit problems 2 One Port Networks Sometimes we only care about the way a linear network behaves at its output terminals We can represent this as a black box with a pair of terminals This black box is called a one-port network Linear network + V - I 3 One Port Network The behavior of this one-port network can be completely described by the relationship between voltage and current at the terminals We don’t care about the contents of the black box as long as the I-V characteristic is correct Linear network + V - I 4 One Port Network--Example To an outside observer, these two networks are identical 10 Ω 10 Ω 5 Ω 5 Source Transformations We can use a similar approach to convert between voltage and current sources to simplify circuits

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
